"During the past week I have learned that my health-related issues are more complex than I originally thought," he wrote.
Apple's chief operating officer, Tim Cook, will take over Jobs' responsibilities while he is on leave.
I wish Jobs well and I think the MacHeads may react differently than Wall Street. Apple as a whole - it's got lots of momentum and support beyond its walls especially since a growing population now genuinely cares about easy to use GUI and aesthetically pleasing design...so I don't see much to fret about.
Regarding after hours trading of Apple - looks like a lot of investors got their panties in a bunch...
